Delta variant fuels rising COVID-19 cases in OC

Andrew Noymer, an epidemiologist and UC Irvine [associate] professor of population health and disease prevention, told City News Service … “It’s an epidemic of everybody, but mostly caused by the unvaccinated,” Noymer said. “Everyone would be more protected, including the vaccinated, if more people would vaccinate.” He added that Orange County residents need to be aware that “things are kind of moving in the wrong direction again on Covid. It’s never too late to get vaccinated and for people who thought they would wait it out and now don’t want to bother, they need to reassess that.”
